New MAAP Alt_Road 2023 collection
Designed for those looking to discover new paths, the well-known cycling apparel brand MAAP presents its redesigned Alt_Road collection for this 2023 season, which has been put to the test on the wildest roads of California by adventurer, photographer and new brand ambassador Chris Burkard.
Stylish clothing for adventurous cyclists
The Australian firm, one of the most booming firms in recent years and the favorite of those cyclists who not only care about the functionality of their garments but also have an attractive aesthetic, renews its Alt_Road collection aimed at those who are not content to follow the established path.
A collection of garments that was put to the test during a 300-kilometer journey along the loneliest roads of California by the new brand ambassador Chris Burkard, a well-known photographer and adventurer.
The Alt_Road Tee 3.0 is an unusual piece of clothing, which breaks away from the usual cycling jersey design to create a jersey that is adapted to adventure rides without sacrificing technical aspects such as the Polartec Power Dry construction that provides optimal breathability.
Available in long or short sleeve versions, the Tee 3.0 takes advantage of the natural fiber characteristics of merino wool, capable of providing optimal thermoregulation in both warm and cool conditions, in addition to its antibacterial, quick-drying and anti-odor capabilities that make it an ideal garment for those multi-day adventures.
The Alt_Road collection is accompanied by accessories such as a curious legionary style cap to protect our head and neck from the sun or a merino wool cap that will keep us warm in the coolest moments. We also find socks, which use these natural fibers and, like the Tee 3.0, have ideal characteristics to face multi-day tours in which we have to optimize our luggage and maximize the use of the clothes we wear.
Speaking of luggage, MAAP continues in its more adventurous collection maintaining the collaboration with the well-known bikepacking bag firm Apidura that has created for the Australian firm an Alt_Road edition of its frame, handlebar and saddle bags, providing us with a complete kit for our bikepacking adventures.
A collection that is already available on the brand's own website where you can also read in detail the adventures of Chris Burkard through the Californian prairies.
